Asta Golf Course, situated between the serene Tingwall and Asta Lochs in the Shetland Isles, is Scotland's northernmost 9-hole golf course. It is set on picturesque flat farmland, offering an excellent setting for golfers of all levels, from beginners to professionals.
What makes Asta Golf Course unique is the individuality of each hole, providing an exciting and diverse experience for players. The course caters to both big hitters looking to showcase their skills and those seeking fun and challenge through wonderfully designed holes.
Besides offering an enjoyable game of golf, Asta Golf Course also provides a tranquil and natural environment. The secluded Tingwall Valley, where the course is located, is home to a variety of wildlife, including Swans, Oystercatchers, Arctic Terns, and Shetland Ponies. The area is rich with wildflowers, adding a burst of color to the peaceful surroundings.
One interesting feature of the Asta Golf Course is that its 9-hole layout changes mid-month. This means that players have the opportunity to experience two very different courses - the "Classic" course, which is the original layout, features the shortest hole measuring only 58 yards, with only the flag visible from the tee. On the other hand, the "New Course" has the longest hole, spanning 400 yards.
Whether you're a golf enthusiast looking for a challenging game or someone seeking to immerse themselves in the beauty of nature, Asta Golf Course offers a truly special and unforgettable experience in the stunning landscape of the Shetland Isles.
